The Five Elements Khandros

The Five Elements Khandros

Tantra is the path of transformation, integration, and clear vision. The tantras help us understand that the source of suffering is our own perception of reality, attachments to our habits, and reluctance to change. Through the transformative practices of tantra we can begin to experience our world as a divine dance, a dance which we can enjoy in every moment.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche teaches from a variety of tantras including those of Sherap Chamma and the Red Garuda, but most frequently our teachings are drawn from the Ma Gyud, or Mother Tantra, the highest of the tantras in the Bon Buddhist lineage. The Ma Gyud includes the practices of dream and sleep yogas, tsa lung, the transformation at the time of death, the Chöd of cutting attachments. We have developed a series of courses that address a variety of these topics.

The view and methods of tantra are introduced in our Treasures of Bön course.  Our free Starting a Meditation Practice courses introduce simple practices such as the 9 breathings or purification and tsa lung. Another good introductory level course is the Three Heart Mantras, which goes into the use of sacred sound and mantras in depth.

Our courses in the tantric traditions include the Six Realms of Existence – transforming our emotions, which supports the purification of our negative habits and the cultivation of virtuous dimensions of our being.

In our Five Elements course we learn practices fundamental to tantra, as well as the Causal Vehicle and Dzogchen. Through the practices of the elements we discover our elemental tendencies, and how to rebalance our bodies, our actions and our minds.

Our course on the practice of Sherap Chamma, the wise and loving divine mother, introduces how to connect directly with presence through deity yoga.

Through this broad variety of courses you may become well versed in a variety of different meditation methods rooted in the tantric traditions.
